Baseball is Back Again

Enjoying the weekend's slate of spring training games with some @Nachos_Grande cards. 

To me, there is absolutely nothing more calming in the world than putting on a baseball game on the TV set, even a random or meaningless exhibition. This weekend officially saw the 2020 MLB season kick off in earnest with a full slate of Grapefruit and Cactus League games, which also means it's time to wrap up some trades from late last year.

Nachos Grande set along a wonderful holiday gift that included some Cardinals goodies and a heaping helping of set filler needs. Let's check out a few of these.

Here's one of those Donruss parallels that's tied to a player's stat line. It's going to be really frustrating if Carlos Martinez doesn't secure one of the spots in the rotation this year, especially with Miles Mikolas missing some significant time.

This is a nice flashback to the past with a card for my DK PC.

Another numbered 2018 Donruss card, this sees Marcell wearing his old Marlins uniform with his (then) new team name.

I'm sure there does exist a scanner that does better justice to foil-based cards like these, but I don't own that scanner.

Here's a few good guys from the aforementioned heaping helping, in the form of 2019 Allen & Ginter.

Great stuff, as always, from Nachos Grande!


  1. Awesome cards. Not normally a fan of A&G but I have to admit those cards look great. Happy Baseball!

  2. Glad you liked the cards! I have what you sent me as well, probably will get a post up in early March (my 30 MLB Team countdown posts use up the remainder of February).

  3. I'm so glad Spring Training has finally started. Now we gotta wait for Opening Day. At least we have cool baseball cards to look at in the meantime.

  4. Great stuff. I just opened up my NG care package this weekend and blogged about it this morning.
